Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements has determined to add to the short supply list in Annex 3.25 of CAFTA-DR in unrestricted quantities certain 100% polyester composite laminated fabric classified under HTSUS 6001.22. CITA found that this fabric is not available in commercial quantities in a timely manner from a supplier in the CAFTA-DR countries. As a result, garments cut and assembled in a CAFTA-DR country from such fabric, regardless of where it is sourced, may be imported duty-free into the U.S. This determination is effective as of Dec. 29.
